The Denver Broncos were able to retain two-time Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon III Wednesday. And Russell Wilson, for one, was loving it.

"25!!!" the QB tweeted. We got us a stable Broncos! #LetsRide."

Gordon was extremely productive as one half of the Broncos two-headed backfield last season. Carries between he and Javonte Williams were split evenly; and in his 203 totes of the rock, the former Charger ran for 913 yards and eight touchdowns. Melvin Gordon's posted over 1,000 yards from scrimmage in each of his two seasons in Mile High. The team is clearly loading up for what should be an exciting season for Denver's franchise; with weapons all over the field, and a new triggerman behind center. Gordon's deal is reportedly a one-year contract worth $5 million.

In a tough AFC West division, the Broncos need all the firepower they can get, and Russell Wilson won't have any shortage of that come Week 1.
